Chapter 22

Laws concerning priests and offering

22:1 And the LORD spake to Moses, saying,
22:2 Speak to Aaron and to his sons, that they separate themselves from the holy things of the children of Israel, and that they profane not my holy name [in those things] which they hallow to me I [am] the LORD.
22:3 Say to them, Who ever [he be] of all your seed among your generations, that goes to the holy things, which the children of Israel hallow to the LORD, having his uncleanness upon him, that soul shall be cut off from my presence I [am] the LORD.
22:4 What man soever of the seed of Aaron [is] a leper, or has a running issue ; he shall not eat of the holy things, until he be clean. And whoso touches any thing [that is] unclean [by] the dead, or a man whose seed goes from him;
22:5 Or who ever touches any creeping thing, whereby he may be made unclean, or a man of whom he may take uncleanness, What ever uncleanness he has;
22:6 The soul which has touched any such shall be unclean until even, and shall not eat of the holy things, unless he wash his flesh with water.
22:7 And when the sun is down, he shall be clean, and shall afterward eat of the holy things; because it [is] his food.
22:8 That which died of itself, or is torn [with beasts ], he shall not eat to defile himself therewith I [am] the LORD.
22:9 They shall therefore keep mine ordinance, unless they bear sin for it, and die therefore, if they profane it I the LORD do sanctify them.
22:10 There shall no stranger eat [of] the holy thing a sojourner of the priest, or an hired servant, shall not eat [of] the holy thing.
22:11 But if the priest buy [any] soul with his money, he shall eat of it, and he that is born in his house they shall eat of his meat.
22:12 If the priest's daughter also be [married] to a stranger, she may not eat of an offering of the holy things.
22:13 But if the priest's daughter be a widow, or divorced, and have no child, and is returned to her father's house, as in her youth, she shall eat of her father's meat but there shall no stranger eat thereof.
22:14 And if a man eat [of] the holy thing unwittingly, then he shall put the fifth [part] thereof to it, and shall give [it] to the priest with the holy thing.
22:15 And they shall not profane the holy things of the children of Israel, which they offer to the LORD ;
22:16 Or suffer them to bear the iniquity of trespass, when they eat their holy things for I the LORD do sanctify them.
22:17 And the LORD spake to Moses, saying,
22:18 Speak to Aaron, and to his sons, and to all the children of Israel, and say to them, What ever [he be] of the house of Israel, or of the strangers in Israel, that will offer his oblation for all his vows, and for all his freewill offerings, which they will offer to the LORD for a burnt offering;
22:19 [ ya'll shall offer] at your own will a male without blemish, of the beeves, of the sheep, or of the goats.
22:20 [But] What ever has a blemish, [that] shall ya'll not offer for it shall not be acceptable for you.
22:21 And who ever offers a sacrifice of peace offerings to the LORD to accomplish [his] vow, or a freewill offering in beeves or sheep, it shall be perfect to be accepted ; there shall be no blemish therein.
22:22 Blind, or broken, or maimed, or having a wen, or scurvy, or scabbed, ya'll shall not offer these to the LORD, nor make an offering by fire of them upon the altar to the LORD.
22:23 Either a bullock or a lamb that has any thing superfluous or lacking in his parts, that may you offer [for] a freewill offering; but for a vow it shall not be accepted.
22:24 ya'll shall not offer to the LORD that which is bruised, or crushed, or broken, or cut ; neither shall ya'll make [any offering thereof] in your land.
22:25 Neither from a stranger's hand shall ya'll offer the bread of your God of any of these ; because their corruption [is] in them, [and] blemishes [be] in them they shall not be accepted for you.

Age of sacrfice

22:26 And the LORD spake to Moses, saying,
22:27 When a bullock, or a sheep, or a goat, is brought forth, then it shall be seven days under the dam ; and from the eighth day and thenceforth it shall be accepted for an offering made by fire to the LORD.
22:28 And [whether it be] cow or ewe, ya'll shall not kill it and her young both in one day.

Law of eating sacrfice

22:29 And when ya'll will offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the LORD, offer [it] at your own will.
22:30 On the same day it shall be eaten up; ya'll shall leave none of it until the morrow I [am] the LORD.
22:31 Therefore shall ya'll keep my commandments, and do them I [am] the LORD.
22:32 Neither shall ya'll profane my holy name ; but I will be hallowed among the children of Israel I [am] the LORD which hallow you,
22:33 That brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God I [am] the LORD.
